The Shore Club's lofty aspirations hit you the minute you arrive in the big, sun-splashed lobby. This ravishing luxury property opened fully formed in 2017, the first hotel built on the breezy shoreline of Long Bay. It's been a smash since day 1, capturing the #1 spot as best resort in Travel + Leisure's 2019 World's Best Awards, with elegant suites in soothing off-white hues, and big windows, patios, and terraces opening on to mesmerizing turquoise sea/sky vistas. It's posh in that gracious colonial way, built for effortless comfort—you move from tufted pillow to plump lounger to warm embryonic water, rinse and repeat. Grace Bay is no frenetic Miami Beach, but it's amazing how chill it can get on the island's quieter south side. Long Bay has the same riveting azure seas as Grace Bay, but the waters here are shallow a long way out, and steady breezes stir up a small chop, ideal conditions for windsurfing. If you're inspired by all the colorful sails scudding by, lessons can be arranged just down the beach. Or kick back in one of the resort's four pools. The Colonnade Pool is ringed in wooden cabanas and comes with an Instagrammable vibe, but we like the quieter Seagrapes Pool, with a swim-up bar and gentle Long Bay breezes. The main restaurant, Sui-Ren, brings fine Asian dining to the TCI; the soaring space alone is breathtaking. And if you've had your fill of chill, a complementary shuttle runs between the Shore Club and its sister resort the Palms, in the heart of the Grace Bay action.
